So finally, did the postponement of release of ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ by a week due to the Ayodhya case court order work in favour of the film or not?
It definitely worked in the film’s favour as the producers managed to generate some kind of buzz around the film in the last week, of course, after spending heavily on further promotion. It is probably because of this that the film took a decent initial on Friday (1st October). Had the film released on 24th September, it may not have taken as good an opening. Therefore, although the producers were poorer by probably more than a crore of rupees, they benefitted in terms of a good opening on Friday.
Will ‘Dabangg’ cross the business of ‘3 Idiots’?
No, it won’t. In India, Dabangg business will fall short of the business of 3 Idiots by around Rs. 20 to 25 crore. In the Overseas circuit, ‘Dabangg’ would fetch a share of around Rs. 11 to 12 crore while ‘3 Idiots’ had yielded a share of over Rs. 30 crore. Still, the business of ‘Dabangg’ is phenomenal, so what if it cannot touch the figures of ‘3 Idiots’!
Is it true that the official admission rate down South for ‘Endhiran’ (Tamil) is as high as Rs. 1,500 for the first week in the topmost class in select multiplexes?
Yes, it’s true! Looking to the craze for Rajnikanth and for Endhiran and given the audience reports, its business is expected to touch the Rs. 100 crore mark! The business of the Telugu and Hindi dubbed versions (both titled Robot) will be over and above the Rs. 100 crore for the Tamil version.
